Better Late than Never Tart

The brrrownies that the TWD bakers made for today are really good- I made them in Januaury for my buddy the chocolate/mint fan's birthday. In an effort to make a new (to me, not to the group) recipe for this Tuesday, I made mini versions of the Tart Noire from last week.

These took under 30 minutes to put together. I already had some tart dough in the freezer which I fit into a mini muffin tin. Put together a small batch of ganache and let it set in the fridge. Simple but fun. Served this with some ice cream I made for dinner with the fam. I was testing a weird ice cream flavor- coffee with candied bacon- and wanted to have something in case that was gross. It wasn't gross but wasn't something I would eat everyday. These tarts, however, could find a way into every day.Dharmagirl has the recipe for you.

So cute and this tart is so good! I just got around to posting it this week too. I'm curious about your ice cream.

That ice cream does not appeal to me, sorry!!!! But your tarts do. I still have not found the time to make that tart but I'm going to. I liked the Brrrrownies this week!

your tarts look absolutely sinful. i kinda feel like grabbing three, freezing them for a bit and tossing them in my mouth to melt. yum-o!

Your mini tarts look great! Minis are so fun, but I'm not always up for the extra work of putting them together. I'd give the ice cream a try, but I'm not so sure I'd like it.

What fun, dark and easily-popped-in-your-mouth tarts! Not so sure about the ice cream, but bacon chocolate chip cookies are another I want to try. Tart Noire - what a hit!
